Best Dramatic Short - Arizona International Film Festival
28 July 2015 | by DanMPopescuSee all my reviews

I gave it a ten out of ten, just for Laurence Fuller's acting and for Dustin Cooks directing. The feminine cast lack in expression, but they still are fully integrated in the director's vision. This is a family drama, and it totally deserves to be the winner of "Best Dramatic" at Arizona International Film Festival. The title is not very revealing, but I feel that this one here, being a short movie, anything related to it will spoil the action. If it seems slow, be sure that it is preparing you for something somehow unexpected. It is not resembling to anything else I've seen before. It has two plans which became one for a moment, you'll see which one when you'll watch it. It is a movie about guilt, but it is positive even if it doesn't obviously show that. A must see! I'm also going to review it on my site.
